Amped Wireless & MetaGeek logoAmped Wireless has partnered with MetaGeek to bundle MetaGeek’s free Wi-Fi analyzer tools.

The new deal allows Amped to distribute via download versions of MetaGeek’s popular inSSIDer Wi-Fi Scanner and also to bundle them with all Amped’s products.

The Amped Wireless Wi-Fi Analytics Tool for Windows is essentially a rebadged version of MetaGeek’s popular inSSIDer, with the main difference being different information presented in the Welcome tab as shown below.

The Android versions diverge in design. Amped’s version has a tabbed interface and a Signal Meter feature that inSSIDer doesn’t have.
